world that it is more dangerous to be america's friend than it is to be our enemy. and i fear very much that in the age of obama that's proving to be true. now, the president's approach to nuclear disarmament which he also unveiled this week confirms the naivity of his views about america's enemies. until this week, any enemy of our country that might be contemplating a chemical, biological or large scale conventional attack against us knew they might face the worst in return, a nuclear response. we have now surrendered that powerful deterent. the new strategy prevents america from building any more nuclear weapons or using our nuclear deterrents to defend our allies against a massive conventional attack. apparently the president believes that if america stops its weapons production program the iranians and the north koreans will follow suit.
